Located 15 minutes from downtown Jasper the beautiful Pyramid Lake is tucked away on but well worth the trip in any season. Located at the foot of Pyramid Mountain, Pyramid Lake is 1.2 square km in the area. It is well known for its island in the lake that is connected by a wooden foot bridge that takes you onto the island to offer incredible views.
During the winter months Pyramid Lake freezes over and offers a wide variety of things to do during your visit. From skating, cross-country skiing, curling, snow-shoeing and sleigh rides are just some of the many things you can do at the beautiful hidden gem found in Jasper National Park. Playing a game of pond hockey with the beautiful mountain range in the background does not get more Canadian than that. Make sure to take a walk over to Pyramid Lake Island the view of the island from anywhere around the lake is breathtaking especially as you walk across the bridge. If you are in need of some warming up the be sure to pop into the Resort and have some incredible food.
If you have made the trek up the Ice Fields Parkway in the winter then this stop at Pyramid Lake should be a must do on your list during your visit to Jasper National Park.
